MANCHESTER, N.H. (PRWEB) November 03, 2018
CCA For Social Good, a division of CCA Global Partners, and the Wisconsin Early Childhood Association are partnering to develop an Early Childhood Education (ECE) Shared Resources online knowledge platform that will give early care and education professionals in Wisconsin access to over 1,600 business tools and resources.
“The development of this comprehensive website aligns with our continued commitment to supporting high quality early education across the state by giving providers the tools and guidance they need to administer their programs more efficiently and effectively,” stated Ruth Schmidt, Executive Director, Wisconsin Early Childhood. “We are grateful for the support of Wisconsin’s Department of Children and Families. Without them we would not be able to bring this tool to WI.”
The online knowledge platform is a one-stop shop for early education providers, giving them access to nationally vetted tools and resources on vital topics including policy and procedure, professional development, health and safety, emergency preparedness, human resource management, savings opportunities and financial and program administration. These resources focus on saving providers essential time and money, increasing their business acumen and creating efficiencies that allow the focus to remain on raising the quality of care provided to children and families throughout the state.
“This is an exciting time for early education professionals in Wisconsin,” noted Denise Sayer, Vice President of CCA For Social Good, the innovator of the resource platform. “ECE Shared Resources supports operational and business efficiencies and promotes best business practice in the industry, giving ECE providers the necessary bandwidth to meet increasing demands and an opportunity to save essential time and money that can be reinvested in raising the quality of child care. We are excited to see the impact this will have in Wisconsin.”
Wisconsin joins thirty other states that offer this platform to strengthen the work of child care providers and administrators in support of positive outcomes for children.
